Kehde's Barbeque

Reviewed By Ralph B - Sedalia, Missouri

We stopped in for a late lunch and they were busy but service was the normal "on top of it" Kehde's style. We ordered the prime rib sandwich, onion rings, bacon cheese burger and a big bird with there potatoe curly fries. All the food was great, service was great, root beer was great.

Little Big Horn is one of our favorites. Terrific fresh hand-breaded tenderloins big enough to share, fresh cut fries and the best steak and prime rib in the area. Catfish is the best in town even when compared to the local catfish house. Friendly service, a little noisy, and worth a visit. You won't be disappointed.

Bandana's Bar-B-Q

Reviewed By nannyto7 - Sedalia, Missouri

My hubby and I always order the same thing at Bandana's and we are never disappointed. The 1/3 slab dinner with two sides. The ribs are consistently good and their baked potatoes are always very hot and fluffy. You have your choice of several bbq sauces here. The staff is friendly and efficient.

Ivory Grille

Being a serious celiac. The person who greeted us said that the kitchen was not set up for gluten free as of yet. Thank you for being honest. Hope next time we come this way. You could offer like uddis or Amy's options..

El Tapatio

Reviewed By Toothy43 - Sheldon, MO

My husband and I enjoyed an evening meal at El Tapatio's in Sedalia, Missouri. It was raining like a monsoon and we pulled in to let the storm pass. The chips/salsa were very fresh and we were waited on immediately. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive during our meal. My husband ordered The Birria, which is made up of slow roasted beef and lamb and is advertised as an authentic Mexican dish, it was delicious! He doesn't try anything out of the usual but was glad he did. I had the Mexicali Chicken and it was very tasty, would also highly recommend. I topped my meal off with a frozen strawberry margarita. It came in a delightful stone jar. Will definitely be a returning customer when we are in the area.

Brick Front Grill

Reviewed By KASK2001 - Eau Claire, Wisconsin

Stopped in a for a quick lunch. This is a counter-service restaurant that gives you a number and brings out your food. You get your own drink and clear your own table.

Gyro was very flavorful, it was sprinkled with some type of seasoning.

Portion of meat was smaller than expected at $7 for sandwhich only.

Fitter's 5th Street Pub

Reviewed By Develas - Cuchillo, New Mexico

This is a very nice representation of the community. Great menu with good beers selection...a sports bar made for families and young singles as well. I had the best pork loin sandwich there which was so big I could not eat the entire thing...one thing though...they don't know how to make traditional guacamole. Everything else was as perfect as you can expect.

Colton's Steak House and Grill

Reviewed By Bill B - Plattsmouth

While traveling, my wife and I walked from the motel to Colton for an evening meal. This appears to be a newer building, with a western atmosphere. While we waiting for our food, we enjoyed the free peanuts that were on our table. The blooming onion was on our table within 5-6 minutes. It has some grease sitting in the bottom of the plate, but other than that, it was wonderful. My wife had the catfish which she enjoyed, and was way more than she could eat. I had the Philly Cheese Steak and fries, which was great. The waitress was kind and explained the specials, and was very prompt. I'm sure we'll be back.

3 of us went. Appearance is,nothing special. Friendly and efficient service. We had a variety of things, all very good
Highlights were the scramble with sausage (2 kinds), eggs (and way), tomatoes, bacon, spinach, onions, jalapeno.... the"mix" of this dish was just right
Really good meal. Great price. Go here for breakfast in Sedalia

North 65 Cafe

Reviewed By Edge W - Columbia, Missouri

The cafe is clean (including restroom). A good use of tile for floors and walls. Menu has typical selections--full spectrum of breakfast items, cold and hot sandwiches, standard dinners. I had chicken fried steak that came with mashed potatoes and gravy, options for vegetables, side salad optional. All were good. Service was prompt, courteous (but I'll never get used to being called "sweetie"). Only complaint is that coffee had sat too long on burner, but I was there after 7 p.m., so that is often the case that late.
